A blue or even a green sapphire would look stunning. What colors are you drawn to? If colored stones make your heart sing more than diamonds, go for it! Just because it’s an unconventional choice doesn’t mean it’s crazy! My engagement ring was a pink sapphire, and my current wedding band is pink sapphires, I absolutely love color!

If you’re unsure, I would leave it as is. You can look into getting gemstones in your wedding band or a right hand ring. I know certain gemstones that are not as hard as others and you may have to replace it in a few years. I don’t know about the ones you mentioned but it is something to think about. I am a huge fan of gemstones myself, but I think your ring is STUNNING as is! I think I’ve seen a similar setting to yours with a deep blue sapphire that was beautiful too though. I think anything you pick would be amazing 🙂

Your ring is gorgeous, I wouldn’t change it.  Although I do love me some morganite!

Have you looked into custom and gotten prices from several jewelrs? It might not be as expensive as you think.

What is your favorite color?  What is your birthstone and his?  What colors do you gravitate toward in your wardrobe?  These are the questions I would be asking myself to select a gemstone.

I think your ring’s perfect as is.  

If you choose to go w/color, go w/sapphire, as it’ll be the most durable.  Since you’re on a budget, I’d recommend lab created sapphires, as they’re affordable and generally clearer and have better color than a mined one (a high quality mined sapphire isn’t that cheap).  Betterthandiamond makes some gorgeous sapphires in a variety of colors, and Chatham’s sapphires are supposed to be some of the best lab-created stones.

Oh my gosh. Your ring is GORGEOUS!! Wow. I would not touch that! If you really want some colored stones, I’d suggest getting the gem of your choice for your other hand and enjoy it there. 

However, if you are truly sold on the idea of adding color to THIS ring, I would not remove the center-stone diamond.  Instead, I would replace what appears in the pic to be twin (or triplet?) baguettes on either side with the colored gems of your choice (assuming that the gem you choose could be cut into that shape.  Not being an expert on precious and semi-precious stones and their durability, I would not know if this is possible.)

Brielle – Good idea! I second this!

I too love your ring how it is. If you’re set on a different centerstone, why not a canary moissanite? One of my favorite celeb. rings is Carrie Underwood’s yellow diamond and I think yours would look very pretty with a yellow moissanite! It’s cheaper than a canary diamond and much more sparkley than a yellow sapphire! Or as the others have mentioned blue sapphires are gorgeous!

@6598731ssfse3: Oh my, yellow would look amazing!  I love Carrie Underwood’s ring and it would have the same feeling as it with a yellow stone.

I love the setting, so I think just about anything will look good in it.  Personally, I would leave it be and get colored stones elsewhere though since good money was already spent on the diamond that your Fiance bought for the purpose of your ering.
